When accessing the website, centraltendencies.com will learn certain information about you during your visit.
Similar to other commercial websites, centraltendencies.com utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see explanation below, "What Are Cookies?") and webserver logs to collect information about how the website is used. Information gathered through cookies and webserver logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, IP addresses, time spent here, and the websites visited just before and just after visiting centraltendencies.com.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our webserver as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the webpages you request) can be sent to you.
If you choose to correspond with me through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, personal information is used only insofar as to complete requests made by you. Personal information given to me on my website will not be retransmitted without written approval.
centraltendencies.com will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you visit my site, unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without the approval of the user at the time of collection.
I may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of my legal rights.
How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?
Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to me by email. However, doing so is allowed, but at your own risk.
centraltendencies.com may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of my site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, centraltendencies.com uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.
If you have any questions regarding this Policy, or your dealings with our web site, please contact me.
